The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-year-olds has passed its first regulatory hurdle. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the good folks on the FDA’s vaccine expert panel approved the mRNA injection for 5 to 11-year-olds.
As I said in my weekly newsletter, which you can sign up for here, wowza, wowza, wow, wow, wow.
According to CNBC, the FDA’s panel vote was nearly unanimous: 17 members approved, 1 abstained. Consensus in “science” for the win.
Let’s use the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-year-olds to find out about safety
“I do think it’s a relatively close call,” adviser Dr. Eric Rubin of Harvard University told the Associated Press.
“It’s really going to be a question of what the prevailing conditions are but we’re never going to learn about how safe this vaccine is unless we start giving it,” Rubin said.
17,128 deaths reported post-vaccination
As of October 15, 2021, there have been 17,128 deaths reported to the CDC directly following the vaccine. My friend’s 32-year-old son died six hours after the shot (and the vaccine is listed as the cause on his death certificate). My neighbor died too (but was 80 and had underlying conditions, so it definitely had nothing to do with the vaccine and was just an “unfortunate coincidence”).
Since the mainstream media and the CDC just ignore these adverse outcomes, I guess they don’t matter! No point in dwelling on the devastating consequences we’ve seen in younger people, especially boys. Come on, people, what’s a little heart inflammation or even a little death compared to COVID-19?
And who cares that our emergency rooms are fuller than they’ve ever been, more people started dying from COVID after the vaccine roll-outs than they were before there were any vaccines available, and that some COVID infections seem to be getting more virulent, even as the rates of vaccination increase?
I’m also not concerned about the difference in weight between 5-year-olds and 11-year-olds. I think one-size-fits-all is always the right way forward in medicine! We all have the same fingerprints, allergy profiles, microbiomes, and medical histories, so we should all get the same shots. Um. Right?
Weight range of a 5-year-old: Between 30 and 50 pounds.
Weight range of an 11-year-old: Between 70 and 100 pounds.
End enthusiastic endorsement of our public health officials. I mean, end rant.
